Completely different form here, Sao Paulo is in middle of Brasilerao in which joined third place on table with five wins in ten rounds, while River is without matches in last six months.
During pandemy-pause say goodbye Scocco ( 6g last season) and Quintero. More, tonight are unavailable Pratto ( striker 4+13) and left-back Casco ( 19).
Without Pratto, River has no more striker available for bench.
Sao Paulo can count on return of Pablo ( att.7 1g and 6g in Paulista) that should substitute topscorer ( in league )Luciano (4g), but possible starting eleven not revealed, yet.
Anyway, apart Luciano, hosts without Alves ( midf.5 1g) and Liziero ( midf.5+1).
Also with these absences main factor for an home win is the total absence of match for long time for the opponent with eight among players called 30 years or more old and three- four of them strong starters in last championship
